Hamilton City Levee Project
An aerial photo shows the completed construction on the Phase 1 levee (North of County Road 23), part of the Hamilton City Flood Damage Reduction and Ecosystem Restoration Project in Hamilton City, California, June 6, 2023. Hamilton City is a small Northern California town that has been evacuated during high-water events five times since 1983. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project has completed 6.8 miles of levee improvements to reduce this flood risk and will also restore approximately 1,400 acres of native habitat.
